Vale de Uco - Mendoza - Argentina
The MARIFLOR vineyards cover 247 acres, of which 148 acres are so far planted to Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with the yield from the vines contributed to "Clos de los Siete" but also Pinot Noir et Sauvignon Blanc.
Soils are a mixture of sand and clay overlying a deep carpet of pebbles, with an aspect facing predominantly east. Water is used for irrigation (extremely controlled) and issued from the ancient groundwater generated by the Andes - this water is one of the most mineral and pure sources around the world.
There, nature is protective, air is pure, landscapes and people from this true Terroir are winded. Even the olive trees, old Mediterranean companions of the vine find full bloom drawing driveways and riverbanks, and produce fruits for a confidential olive oil... How can we resist to so much charms!
